FSE - Federal Stats Europa
Founded in 2101 as the foundering United Federal Europe splits. Germany, Austria and several East European states formed the NSL in response to "French domination of the UFE", and the FSE was created in response as France and the other remaining UFE members (notably Spain and Italy) joined in common interest. Within a very short time, border skirmishes between the two groups led to open warfare on both Earth and the other European-controlled worlds. This conflict lasted for three years, ending with an Anglian Confederation and UN co-sponsored peace plan.
